Welcome to the blog for BIOSPHERE Environmental Education!
Our goal is to provide outstanding environmental education programs. What makes our educational programs different from others is that we use photography and videography as a core component of our teaching approach. Students learn the tools of ‘environmental visual communication’ so that they can create their own environmental messages and inspire their peers to create positive environmental change.
We believe that the best education comes through experience. This is why expeditions are a core component of our environmental education program. This approach directly connects people with nature and the physical challenges of outdoor adventure also allow students to foster a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence.
To mentor a new generation of leaders, innovators, and world citizens who believe that the long term health of earth’s environments is at least as important as profits and development, and who will guide their generation toward a sustainable way of living.
We hope you’re subscribe to our blog to hear all about our adventures, our successes, and our new programs. We’re just in the process of developing our very first program, the Youth Environmental Ambassadors Program. Click HERE to read more about it. And we hope you’ll spread the word about our program and share our blog widely.
I hope you’ll take the time to read our blog and to leave your comments. I look forward to hearing from you.
